Each year, our organization assists women and families in our community, and without donations from individuals like you, this would not be possible. Donations help sustain our organization and benefit the community which we serve.
The State Budget Impasse has greatly impacted the programs at the YWCA Elgin. Through your support we will be able to continue to “empower the parent to grow the child” by increasing literacy in families and providing afterschool care for children of working parents. Last year, 100% of our participants were below poverty level and receiving public assistance in some form. Due to the fact that they come from low-income households, the children we serve are extremely high-risk for academic failure and social problems. We need your help to navigate through this political tsunami and keep the doors open for families.
Thank you in advance for your support.
P.S. As the YWCA Elgin is a non-profit organization, your gift is tax-deductible!
